Grab popsicles for the kids and a cold brew for yourself. By the time you make the short stroll to your little slice of paradise in the sand, they'll still be chillin'. (And the popsicles and beer, too! ;)

Welcome to Gulfside 404 is your home away from home at the luxurious Destin West Beach & Bay Resort. Besides its incredible oceanfront location -- practically a stone's throw from the sugar white sand of the gorgeous Gulf shoreline -- this fourth-floor unit with its wraparound balcony and stunning views of the aqua blue waters of both the sea and pool is just what the doctor ordered for truly unwinding. Aquatherapy just doesn't get any better than this. Gulfside 404 is a jewel among condos at Destin West... so perfect for hangin' at the beach with (or without?) the kids, counting waves, building sandcastles, people watching, snacking or just lazing around for a change. Hey... it's vacation, after all!


Not that kicking back is the ONLY thing to do at Destin West. If you haven't been here before, TRUST us when we say that the amenities on both bay and Gulf sides are incomparable. (And that's not counting the local area attractions we've listed below.) Destin West is a veritable oasis of pools, palm trees, Jacuzzis and, the Piece de resistance... a continually flowing, 700 foot-long tuber's dream called the "Lazy River" located just across the sky bridge. It's just that, at Destin West Gulfside 404 -- and we know this may come as a shock -- YOU get to decide whether to spend the day with your feet in the sand... or surf. Stretched out in a beach chair... or floating, in a donut-shaped pillow, around the 700ft lazy river. Taking a short walk to a restaurant for a bite to eat... or cruisin' on back to your condo to grab a sandwich and head back out to the beach. Lazing around, or going snorkeling... the choice is always up to you. How cool is that?


Leave your shoes -- and your cares -- at the door and step inside your roomy, three-bedroom, two-bath condo with its amazing views of the sugar white beach, turquoise waves, and the spectacular pool, and you'll immediately know you're home. Tastefully appointed in comfortable and stylish furnishings, the coastal hues pay homage to what's outside, Gulfside 404 is your perfect family getaway. The master suite, which has its own private door to the wraparound deck, houses a beachy-chic, king-sized bed all decked out in premium linens and with a comfortable mattress for that all important great night's sleep. The master also has a chair that convert into a twin sleeper just in case you need room for one more.

Getting ready for dinner out is a breeze in the adjoining master bath with double vanities, separate shower and a sumptuous garden tub. The tastefully appointed guestroom with adjoining second bath and queen bed also sports premium linens and mattress, in keeping with the theme of comfort. Tucked away from the adult space, the colorful kids' bunkroom is ideal for coaxing weary sandcastle architects to sweet, blissful sleep. And, of course, each room has its own flat screen TV to meet a variety of entertainment preferences, from cartoons to sports to HGTV and beyond. Please note that the bunk room TV plays DVDs only, but we have a library of great movies provided.

The living room offers a queen sleeper sofa (the condo sleeps up to eight guests), DVD player and a large HDTV for family movie night. Free wireless internet lets you post your vaycay photos for all your friends and family to envy. A fully equipped kitchen (should you actually feel inclined to cook) features a side-by side refrigerator equipped with water and ice, dishwasher, oven with smooth-top range and a built-in microwave (for microwave popcorn... and meals... yes, vacation is all about ease). A coffee maker, toaster and blender round out our well-appointed kitchen, so you can enjoy your morning smoothies with coffee and a bagel. We didn't forget the washer and dryer, either. Hey, it's less to pack... just bring your swimsuits and flip flops. We also stashed beach chairs and an umbrella in a rolling cart for easy transfer to the beach.


The resort's list of amenities is almost embarrassing, they're so luxurious. With offerings like a 5,000 square-foot swimming pool, kid-friendly zero-entry (aka beach) pool, two giant Jacuzzis, winter-heated waterfall pool, and the region's largest lazy river, you'll have to be very intentional to have anything less than a perfect day. The resort's private footbridge makes for safe, easy transit between the pristine, white-sand beach of the Gulf of Mexico's Choctawhatchee Bay, and the bay side with its Lazy River and unparalleled amenities. Rent boogie boards, sea kayaks, or jet skis; sign the kids up for resort activities; and sweat off Florida's epicurean delights in the state-of-the-art fitness center.

As if that weren't enough, Destin West is walking distance to a slew of activities the likes of which you won't find anywhere else. The Boardwalk and fishing pier, Fudpuckers, The Gulfarium, and The Ramada Palaza are all a short walk from the Resort. As a guest with us, you always have full access to all of the amenities at the Ramada Plaza Resort, including the famous Grotto Pool with swim-up bar. Or, if you prefer to go exploring, Okaloosa Island offers miles of Gulf and Bay beaches that are perfect for outdoor adventures.

Yes, without a doubt, Destin West Resort is one of the most family-friendly, well serviced, and upscale locales on the island. Ready to book it now? Weeks fill up quickly... consider yourself forewarned. ;)

                                  Had a great stay.. Beautiful condo!

                                  Kathryn M.

                                  One small hiccup, but was taken care of quickly. Would rent from again.

                                  Owner's Response:

                                  Thank you for letting us host you! So glad you had a great stay and thought the condo was beautiful! We look forward to having you visit with us again!

                                  Love this place!

                                  Dennis D.

                                  We stayed in a different unit than usual this year because the one we normally rent was booked. Loved this one even more! Very nicely decorated. Weather wasn't the best this year due to Irma but that's the chance you take. Enjoyed our stay none the less and will likely be back next year.

                                  Owner's Response:

                                  Hi Dennis. I am so glad you enjoyed your stay with us. As you know, we can never predict the weather, but will always make sure you have a fantastic stay. I would love to have your family come back again soon. ~ David


                                  Laura B.

                                  Where do I begin? The condo is perfect in every way and the owners are some of the nicest people you could ever meet. The resort has so many amenities and was perfect for family vacation (my toddlers LOVED the splash pad). We always felt safe and taken care of during our stay. I don't even have to tell you how perfect the water and sand are. We plan to go back next year for sure!

                                  Owner's Response:

                                  Hey Laura. Thank you so much for your 5 star review. This condo has so much to offer. I am thrilled you loved it and your sweet little one enjoyed the splash pad. There are so many fun activities for families. I would love to have your family come back soon. Call or email me anytime you are ready to plan your next stay. From our family to yours. ~ David and Lisa

                                  So much to do, if you want to. So easy to just take it easy, if you prefer a relaxing vacation.

                                  Ginger T.

                                  From the moment we arrived we had an enjoyable trip. This was my first trip to Florida. We were there for my sister's "Destination Wedding". The condo we stayed in was spacious, beautiful and clean. Our party rented 20 different condo units and we all visited each other. If you want a unit on the bottom floor, you give up the view that you get on the upper floors, but, you gain easy access to the pool/hot tub. You also get a little patio which holds more people than the balcony. Bring a couple of extra lawn chairs if you want to all enjoy your coffee on the patio in the mornings. Unit 116 had the largest patio and gave us the opportunity to get together there. The pool and hot tub are clean and the little kiddies enjoyed the kiddie pool and the splash pad. The condos are a great way to enjoy some family fun time. This was my first VRBO rental, but, it won't be my last. Thanks for a memorable trip!! * * * * * (five stars)

                                  Owner's Response:

                                  Hey Ginger. Thank you so much for your 5 star review. I hope you enjoyed the wedding weekend. These units are perfect for families to all get together at one time. Depending of needs of family members, I can always recommend specific units for family members needs. From our elderly family members and small kiddos, to families wanting that beautiful view, we will always make sure you are happy with your condo. We would love to have your family come back soon to stay. ~ From our family to yours. ~ David and Lisa

                                  What a great time for the family. Great location, close to everything. Nice beach and the person in charge was tremendous!

                                  Hi Arnold. I am thrilled you enjoyed your stay. =) Feel free to contact me anytime you are ready to return. ~ David

                                  Stop your search - this is it!!

                                  Meredith J.Tennessee

                                  Beautiful and "homey" condo with a fantastic view of the beach and ocean. Easy access to everything- pool, beach, and even just across the bridge to the other side of the road, the lazy river and another pool. The condo is so clean and spacious, and has everything you need. Wonderful places to eat, harbor, putt-putt, shopping are right there beside you ( walking distance). It is also very short, easy drive into the main area of Destin if you so chose. We enjoyed our time here so much! This was our first time staying in this area and at this resort. Thank you so much Dave and Lisa!!!

                                  Owner's Response:

                                  Hi Meredith. We are so happy you enjoyed your stay with us. Destin is such a special place. We always make sure our condos are clean and inviting. We want you to feel at home as soon as you walk in the door. So glad we were able to make your stay so enjoyable. From our family to yours. ~ David and Lisa
